Where to buy the PlayStation 5 in Ireland 2021

The fifth PlayStation console launched on 12 November – we've rounded up all the places you can expect to buy the PS5 in Ireland.

After seven highly successful years, the sun is finally about to set on the PlayStation 4. On 12 November 2020, Sony launched its next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it’s poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape. Crucially, it’s also backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 software, which means the majority of your old games will work on the new system.

Unfortunately, stock is still extremely limited – most of the first and second manufacturing “waves” have already been snapped up by pre-ordering customers. While there should be some consoles available on our next delivery “wave”, you will need to be extremely quick. Confirmed retailers that will be selling the PS5 in 2021 include Amazon, Littlewoods, Currys PC World, Very and GAME.

Here’s a list of the online stores where you might be able to buy the console.

How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?

Sony released two consoles at launch: The standard edition and an all-digital version that lacks an optical disc drive (otherwise, the specifications are identical).

  • The PlayStation 5 Standard Edition costs €499.99
  • The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs €399.99

PS5 games are generally more expensive too, so you can expect to pay around €5-€10 more than full-priced current-gen titles. You can find a full list of every confirmed PS5 game here.


Which version should you buy?

Wondering if you should buy the standard or digital edition of PS5? The latter version will retail for less but you won’t be able to play physical games or Blu-ray/DVD movies. Instead, all media needs to be streamed or downloaded through an Internet connection. (Sony hasn’t revealed how this will affect backwards compatibility with PS4 games. Hopefully, some form of proof-of-purchase will be utilised so that you can download and play your old games.)

With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you like watching Blu-ray movies and don’t want to clutter your home entertainment unit with extra hardware, go for the standard edition.
